Last year a great effort was made to fill in empty spots of the 24th Street shopping district with young trees. From Diamond Street down to Church, dozens of new trees were planted.
If it as case of easy-come, easy go now? Within the past several weeks, notices from the City have been taped up all along 24th and some nearby streets alerting residents that mature trees are being chopped down. The three old eucalypts between the Radio Shack and Le Zinc for instance. And the towering trees outside Bacco and Pasta Gina. And at the corner near Pomodoro.
What gives? I don’t think we want to give up our mature shade trees – no offense to the little guys planted last year.
